Display Settings & Configuration

When setting up your Looking Glass 65" display alongside your secondary monitor (recommended) to use at the UI screen, ensure the following:
  • The Looking Glass 65" and secondary monitor should be extended, not mirrored.
  • The Looking Glass 65" should be scaled at 100%
  • The secondary monitor should be set as your "primary display"
This setup will allow for you to seamlessly control your applications and content from the secondary display with the holographic content running on your Looking Glass 65".

Test your setup

This simple test can be run to ensure that hardware is connected, and software is installed and configured:
When the above button is pressed, your Looking Glass 65" should show a 3D image of Shawn from Looking Glass. To close this image, move your mouse over to the Looking Glass and click the ESC key on the keyboard.
If the hologram appears with diagonal lines, there is an error loading the calibration data. Please retry the setup steps above to ensure it is properly configured, double check that all cables are plugged in and that your monitor settings are correct.

Common Troubleshooting Issues

If your PC is not switching on when connected to the Looking Glass 65" Display
Note that when you setup + switch on the PC, avoid having all peripherals connected at once. Only have the secondary screen connected.
Then, after setup, you can connect all the other accessories. This is to prevent the PC from drawing too much power at once.
If you notice that your demos seem to be running to the left side of the display and there is something wrong with how they look
Reset the Looking Glass display with the on & off with the side power button.
If you notice that some media in Looking Glass Studio is running at a slower frame rate
This could be for one of two reasons. The first is to ensure that you have Vertical Sync enabled ->
  1. 1.
    Click the Start button or Windows icon
  2. 2.
    Type NVIDIA control panel into the search bar
  3. 3.
    Press Enter on your keyboard
  4. 4.
    Click Manage 3D settings
  5. 5.
    Under I would like to use the following 3D settings, scroll down until you see Vertical sync
  6. 6.
    Select Vertical sync to choose Force on from the drop-down menu
Second, ensure that the graphics card is targeting all the applications that you've installed including the web browser you're using (we recommend Chrome). For a detailed breakdown of how to set this for your PC, follow this guide here.
If USB-C ports on the back of the 65" PC aren't functioning properly.
